Hearing problems are rated under the VA Schedule of Ratings Disabilities in Section 4.87, diagnostic codes 6200 to 6260. Common hearing issues for veterans include hearing loss and tinnitus. Other ear disabilities include:

  • cancer, entitled to a 100% rating for six months following termination of cancer treatment
  • peripheral vestibular disorders (inner ear problem leading to dizziness), rated at 10% for occasional dizziness or 30% when you have dizziness and sometimes stagger
  • loss of one or both ears (auricles), rated at 30% for loss of one ear or 50% for loss of both, and
  • perforated eardrum (the only available rating is 0%).

Hi,

At this point in time I am receiving 10% for hearing loss. Hearing loss from flight deck and other aircraft sounds.

I have just gotten a new hearing test. Hearing has gotten worse.

Can I get an increase in Benefits from 10% to 30?

Yes you can, I went from 0% S.C. TO 50%S.C. after I was denied and NOD ask for increase....got the 50%   if you get a rater that can READ.

Now obviously the hearing test numbers need to show your hearing loss levels And meet the hearing loss special ratings table criteria

Also if you have a ringing or buzz  humm sounds in your head   you need to let the Audiologist know this 

 That is known as we know it today as Tinnitus  and there actually is no test for it,   you need to let the Dr Know you have that and its of constant sounds never goes away and very worse at night after going to bed

The Tinnitus is 10% rating for both ears.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
